Format: Paperback
This is a very good book done for MJ's memory. It was a little pricey...about $16.00, but worth it. Some photos were not clear and I DID NOT like that especially for the price, but it's focus was on Michael's success!!! He was the Greatest Entertainer Every Lived !!

I received the books in a timely fashion and in excellent condition as promised. I would definitely purchase from this vendor again. I had purchased one copy of this same book at Sam's Club for twice the price. I am a school librarian at a midwestern inner-city elementary school. This is the only Michael Jackson biopic that has content that is acceptable for my students' age level. I now have five copies of this book and cannot keep them on the shelves. My students are reading something that interests them - I cannot thank you enough for offering them this opportunity.

What can I say? I enjoy looking at pictures of, and reading articles about, Michael Jackson. I have been a fan of his from the beginning, especially when they became the Jacksons and when Michael went solo. If you love Michael, you will appreciate this book. MRS BWMN...

This book, once again, has most of the generic information on Michael Jackson that is in all of the other similar books. The pictures, however, are closeups of pictures most everybody has seen, but they are large and beautiful. It's nice to be able to see the closeups.

I have several books on MJ now, and beyond the usual accounts of his childhood and such, you don't find many of the books that have recently been published to say anything much different. Now I'm on the hunt for books that were written during the times of the events that they discuss (1980's and 1990's). You get a different view and sometimes a whole new perspective.

Format: Paperback
Have you ever liked Michael Jackson or read one of his stories? If so then you should read one of his life story called "Michael Jackson: the One and Only". This story tells all about his life like what he did when he was young, when he started singing and when his albums came out. My opinion about this book is that it was awesome because it tells mostly about his life and some people would like to know a little about his life besides being a singer. This book doesn't really have a setting. The characters are just Michael Jackson and his family.

This book will blow your mind because it has amazing and shocking things you might not know. Some are what you might already know. When I read this book I didn't know things that happen to him. This book has amazing pictures of his brothers and him together, with the people he worked and sang with. If you like to read about people life like an autobiography then I would recommend you to read this story about "Michael Jackson the One and Only". I would rate this book a 9 because somethings I didn't like how he was treated. If you want to know what happened to him then read this story.

This is just the latest purchase in a long list of books about Michael Jackson. 'Can't stop until I get enough! The others were more recent, but it was this title that lured me in. And I was not disappointed. A real tribute to the King Of Pop, it positively glows with information and pictures, a real emotional tugs at the heart strings read. On the first page the words 'The Day the MUSIC DIED' opposite six newspaper headlines from India draw you in; then over the page is the little house at Gary with flowers on the front lawn opposite the Apollo Theatre lit up at sunset and the illuminated advertisement 'IN MEMORY OF MICHAEL JACKSON. A True Apollo Legend 1958 - 2009', are stunning. On and on it goes, from early shots of him and his brothers in 1968, big beautiful colour 'Oh Wow' photographs of him receiving his honorary degree in New York, a page of music and lyrics from 'We Are The World', meeting Princess Diana, fired up during tour performances, meeting Nelson Mandela, US presidents, with Elizabeth Taylor and Lisa Marie, at Monte Carlo World Music Awards in 2000, right up to him appearing at Earls Court, London in front of a huge crowd of ecstatic fans, some crying, some screaming, some photographing him, some reaching out for him, at the 2006 World Music Awards, and the celebrity tributes. The words with a photograph of fans in South Korea holding a giant poster of him, 'Huge in Africa, Europe and Asia, Jackson has truly dominated the globe' just about sum him up. I curled up in bed with this book and read it straight through in one go, couldn't put it down. Although I bought it second hand from Paperback books, it was in good condition.
